A full-blown makeover is hard to resist but is not always an affordable option. Wanting new paint, new furniture, new lighting do require a considerable amount of money as well as time. You need professional help for the whole shebang.

However, it is not a feasible option for all of us. If you are also considering a makeover but hardly find the time or are tight on budget, there is no need to worry. You can still upgrade your homes without having to give up weeks and making a dent in your bank.

In this blog, we will discuss some small changes that can make a big impact on your home interior. These changes are not time-consuming and are inexpensive to boot.

Let’s have a look at some of the most inexpensive and easy to do changes in your home interiors:

Swap The Switch Plates

Switching the switch plates will make a big difference in any room. Usually, these switch plates are either in white or neutral colors. This is a good area where you can take risks experimenting with colors, patterns, and textures. The fun part is that you can DIY. No Professional Skills required.

Upgrade Your Entryway

The front door is the entry point of your home where you have the chance to make a good first impression. You can repaint your door and add a decorative door knocker. There is a wide range of options available to spruce up your doorway.

Add something unexpected and unique to the doorknob to get everyone’s attention. It can be fun as well. However, do not disregard the functionality of the doorknob. Choose something easy to hold(use).

House Numbers are usually neglected in the larger scheme of things when it comes to home makeovers. Get creative and change the appearance of the House Numbers. Change the font if you like and work in things like plants or antique hardware.

Update Your Lighting

Start with the natural light source such as doors and windows. Use the natural light to your advantage. Remove any heavy curtains or dark drapes and use lighter colors for curtains instead. Use lightweight window treatments. Include blinds or shades as they allow more natural light to come in during the day.

Swapping the lighting of any room can bring about a huge change to the look, feel, and style of the room. Soft white bulbs and a dimmer can have a huge impact. This change is quick, cheap, and easy to achieve as well.

Keep the functionality of the lighting and for what purpose you need it in mind before making any decisions about lighting choices. You can use Mood Lighting to set the mood in the bedroom. A dimmer switch works wonders in this scenario.

Bring In Rugs

Rugs can be expensive but can completely transform a room. You can find a previously owned rug to stay within your budget and be environmentally conscious.

Area rugs are just another way to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home. They come in a variety of sizes, colors, patterns, and shapes. Area rugs are instrumental in tying your home décor together.

The right selection of rugs can add some life to a basic room.

Exhibit Artwork

It doesn’t necessarily mean purchasing and displaying expensive works of art. You can invest in quality frames which can be found in any secondhand store. Choose the frames and fill the frames with family pictures and sourced digital prints. You can switch these prints depending on your mood and current happenings.

Hang them on the walls in your living room. Scenic photos can be placed in the bathroom or bedroom.

Artwork and photos can be incorporated into home interior design as a finishing touch.

Create A Centerpiece

A Dining Room benefits when you create a centerpiece for the tabletop. This is an easy way to add texture to your dining room. The centerpiece could be trinkets or a candle. As long as it reflects your style and personality, it is good to go.

Play With Shapes

A great way to add dimension to a room is to play with shapes. For a rectangular table, try incorporating some curved lines in other furniture pieces, centerpieces, and vice versa. This tiny detail, if taken into account, can make a big impact on the overall design.

Update Bedding

Transform the look of your bedroom by updating your bedding and Duvet covers. This does not require a complete revamp. They are easy to store as well. Don’t forget about Bedding Accessories like a good throw blanket. Swap out the throw at the foot of the bed to add texture and colour to the bedroom.

Incorporate Greenery

Adding greenery livens any room up naturally. Small hanging plants can be used in the kitchen. Large plants instead of smaller potted plants can be placed in the living room. Introducing greenery inside the home brings many benefits for both body and mind. It also provides great smelling breathing air.

Wallpaper Bookcases

Wallpaper isn’t just meant for walls. You can use them in small amounts by using them on a small piece of furniture instead of the walls of a full room. Line the back of your bookshelves, dresser drawers or even the insides of a small cabinet. It will give your space a new look.


A nice looking home doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. It doesn’t necessarily require a lot of renovation or even a complete revamp.

In interior designing, it is often the littlest things that make the biggest impact. Incorporate the small changes mentioned above into your home interior and decor and you will have a completely transformed space that you’d never thought possible.
